Also titled: The Greeks Had a Word for Them. So, would that word be "frienemies"? Or perhaps "gold digger"? Or maybe it's just plain "b***h"! Whatever word you choose, I'm sure at some point you'll wish you could throttle Jean Lawrence. This movie is mainly about Jean (Ina Claire) who returns from Paris completely broke and her and her 2 friends run around town shmoozing the wealthy bachelors.
Jean continually ruins her friends' love affairs thru schemes and frame ups, and eventually sets herself up to marry a rich old man. Her two old pals rush in on her wedding day and through some conniving of their own ruin Jean's plans for a comfortable future. Why the two girls don't kick that nasty tramp to the curb is beyond me, but it makes for a good movie. There are moments when the girls' bickering and pot shots are so shrill, fast and furious that you can't even keep up. But it doesn't matter as it's not crucial to the story, just the fact that they are fighting, then making up, over and over and over, etc..
